About Whimsy & Artifice

Welcome to the Imagimansion! We are Whimsy & Artifice, a creative hub for the fantastic, the interactive, and the nostalgic.

Who Are We?

  • Aly Grauer is the Whimsy. She has published several short fiction pieces, and she published her first novel, "On The Isle of Sound and Wonder," in 2014 and re-released it in 2020. She dabbles in voice acting and audiobooks from time to time. Her game "Sidewalkia!" was a winner of the 2018 200 Word RPG Challenge, and her game "Break Room" appears in The Ultimate Micro RPG Book. Aly also teaches dialect lessons and would love to help coach you, your actual play podcast team, or your next audio drama production!
  • Drew Mierzejewski is the Artifice. A longtime GM, Drew has explored many different tabletop RPG settings and systems, but is always looking for more. Drew's game "Happily Ever Maybe" was a finalist in the 2017 200 Word RPG Challenge. He has several other RPG works-in-progress and loves to collaborate with other game creators. He occasionally contributes as a freelancer for Shadowrun. He holds an MFA from Northern Illinois University in Acting, and coaches Acting for Roleplayers as well as consults with creators on worldbuilding for their games, fiction, and other mediums.

What Are We Doing?


Currently, we are working on several Patreon-direct projects such as Worldforging, a Patreon-exclusive podcast where we create a brand new world setting from scratch, guided by patron votes and suggestions.

We have a number of audio drama/comedy projects in varying stages of completion. Some of these are Warda-related, some are new and original stories and ideas. 

Occasionally, silly audio tidbits pop up as well (like our "Pitch Meeting for Frozen 2" or "Drew Recites The Song From Portal In A Fancy Accent"). You never really know what you're going to get!

Our big (podcast/fiction/audio/ttrpg) project Warda is currently on hiatus, but there is PLENTY of backlog to listen to and read if you're interested... and please know that we fully intend to return to it in fiction, audio, and gameplay in the future.

Other past projects include: Solar Lineers, DND20 Public Radio, The Night's Rewatch, Disney Odyssey, and more!

What Are Our Goals with Patreon?

Patreon is a way for people to directly contribute to our creative pursuits AND directly influence the choices we make in storytelling, structure, and future outcomes. This is true of our multimedia creation Warda as well as other projects we plan to introduce over time, such as Worldforging, new fiction, audio dramas, RPG game hacks, and pop culture commentary.

By jumping in here to help us create and produce, you will be making a massive difference in both the outcome of these projects and directly to our real life - so for that, we thank you!

With many thanks and much love,

Aly & Drew

At this level, we will return to Warda for the first fully-produced audio drama episode of "Threads of Alva." Written by Drew and recorded in 2019-2020 by a number of new (and familiar!) voices, this audio drama follows Alva Goldfinch looking for answers in Ammingrad during the aftermath of Stormfall.
